Day 17

My dad is recently retired and has become such an active part of my kids lives. It is so precious! For me, for him, and especially for them. He decided the other day it would be fun if the 4 of us planted a garden in our backyard. Now, the 2 kids probably have as much experience growing things as my dad and I put together. So, this is quite the adventure! I love that he is willing to dive in and help make memories with his grandchildren regardless if we never grow a thing.

We almost lost my dad a year or two before Alivia was born. Looking back over the last 5 years, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Grateful that he is still here to teach me so many lessons. And grateful that he is such a huge presence in my children's lives.



  1. And now I am going to cry. I am so thankful that your dad is such a great dad and grandpa. It is a beautiful thing to see, my friend!

  2. Thank you Jesus for Dareth's Dad, A & K's Grandpa. He is special to them. Bless him and keep him, shine Your face upon him. Amen
